TIPS AND TRICKS

01.

Wear gloves while outside or cleaning indoors.

Cold, dry air during the holiday season dries out the nails making them brittle. Household cleaning agents (and excessive hand washing to remove them) can also chap skin on the hands, and damage cuticles. Wearing gloves can minimize the damage and keep your hands and nails looking better longer.

02.

Moisturize frequently.

Use a lotion or cream for nails, hands, and feet. Stay away from ingredients like parabens, silicone, and perfumes which damage the skin and nails. Look for Vitamin E, Avocado oil, and Shea Butter which encourages cell growth, and keeps your hands, feet and nails protected.

03.

Limit polish changes to a minimum of 10 days.

While it’s tempting to change your nail shade often to match your outfits, removing and reapplying too often will dehydrate your nails and make them brittle. Use a light or translucent shade for touch ups in between polish changes to keep your manicures and pedicures looking their best.

04.

Keep your nails short and don’t file or buff the nail bed.

While filing the nail edges and tips is fine, filing the nail bed (the main surface of the nail) removes a layer of cells that takes a minimum of 6 months to grow back! This leaves nails thin and brittle. Winter nails tend to break, chip, and tear easier during the drier winter months. Keeping them shorter will keep them looking healthier.

05.

Eat more protein.

Nails are made of a fibrous protein called keratin which requires amino acids found in the proteins from your diet. While it’s tempting to indulge in all of those sweet treats, eating a balanced diet and including more protein will help to keep your hands and feet looking fabulous through the new year.
